Well, in search of an escaped bitty-bit, I have emptied the trash can for a second time today.
The first bit was not found in the trash can. After banging my head on my desk, I remembered that the piece had been curling up, so I had put it under a tile to flatten it out. Surprisingly, that's exactly where I found it.
The second bit is still missing. [insert string of profanity]
Technically, the design time I've spent on one of my smalls, makes it an "extra large," BUT... it's a piece I've been intending to design for some time and a design I will be able to use for other projects, so...
